tonight minnesota shutdown. the land of 10,000 lakes furloughs 22,000 state employees. what's behind the the holiday weekend budget impasse. a new endorsement deal from michael vick. a guy that looks at nike controversial decision to resign the the star who served jail time for dog fighting. tennis racket, ask whether all those exclamations on the courts are really necessary. and being there. we go to a ceremony seen halfway around the world. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with russ mitchell. >> mitchell: good evening. the holiday weekend is off to a very bad start in minnesota. from state employees who
6:31pm
vacation is looking for a cam ground. a budget stalemate has shutdown most of those state services and that's casting a shadow all the way to washington d.c. where the 9 the deadline for raising the federal debt ceiling is now exactly one month away. johnson has the the latest. >> reporter: many fireworks in minnesota have nothing to do with the 4th of july. angry protesters took to the capitol steps barking at law makers for failing to close a $5 billion budget gap. the resulting government shutdown means 22,000 state workers were furloughed without pay. state parks, cam grounds, even the state sue sue sue was closed awe hold a holiday week even. >> how can you solve the budget crises if you're not employing people. it just doesn't make logical sense. >> reporter: in the past decade four other states have suffered government shutdowns. new jersey, pennsylvania, tennessee and michigan. this is minnesota's second since
6:32pm
2005. >> to me shutting down should not be an oftennion. >> reporter: the the deadlock came when the state's democratic governor called for the heavier taxes on the wealthy to help balance the the budget, a deal breaker for republicans in the state legislature. all sides went home for the holiday with no plans to talk before tuesday. not unlike what's happening in washington. >> you stay here. let's get it done. >> reporter: bipartisan talks over raising the nation's debt limit have stalled. the treasury warns lawmakers have until august 2nd to cut a deal or the u.s. government could be unable to pay its bills for the first time ever. >> mitchell: and like in minnesota, congress is off for the holiday weeknd. so is president obama who is spending time at camp david. everybody is coming back to work next week. but so far no bipartisan talks have been scheduleed. whit johnson at the whitehouse, thank you. >> mitchell: could minnesota
6:33pm
be in store for other station and maybe the u.s. government itself. we'll shed some light on that with rebecca. good to see you. could it be a snapshot of what happened everywhere if deals are not melt and realistic budgets are not set. >> when you look at minnesota law makers can't come to a compromise so you're seeing cuts in jobs and services and that's certainly something we'll see if the debt ceiling doesn't get raised because of the fact we just don't have the money to pay for 245ez -- these commitments. we have a commitment to our debt as a country. if the united states does not get that money increasing the debt ceiling all of a sudden we can't make good on our debt payments. that has a much grander effect. not something that will impact things here but also impact the world because the united states is a major player in the world market. >> mitchell: when you look, it's really easy to look in greece where we saw people upset over proposed budget cuts and proposed slashes in government programs and higher taxes. at one time what was happening there literally seemed so foreign to us. is it a fair comparison to look
6:34pm
at them and us at the same time. >> by the numbers, the united states isn't that far off from greece. for every dollar that our government is spending, they're borrowing $.40. and that money has to come from somewhere. so we continue to add to our borrowing while at the same time we're not producing that much more as far as gdp output. so the big issue going forward facing the united states is not only that we're similar in terms of our numbers but the bigger issue is we're interconnected. united states is a much bigger player on the world stage than greece. >> mitchell: in the middle of this kay chaos how do you explain it. >> putting these issues on the back burner and inon said it focused on manufacturing, a huge driver of growth and this week we got some strong data on it. >> mitchell: rebecca jarvis. thanks very much. it's rough being a teenager looking for a job. the numbers show 24% of 16-19 year olds are unemployed. their main competition, older workers who at these times are
6:35pm
after the same jobs. we take a look at what's happening to all those teens who want to find work. >> reporter: 17 year old alex rodriguez thrives on competition. but not the type he's seeing in the job market. >> it applies to every store. i've called them, i've had my mom call them. i've had my teachers here have been helping me. >> reporter: does it get disheartening to keep searching. >> it does get difficult. because you can awe meyer to so many jobs -- apply to so many jobs and if you don't get a phone call gets you upset. >> reporter: his teacher says in last year's class of 20 students, 18 had jobs. this year only 4 do. >> it's discouraging to want even just a minimum wage job and be told that those aren't even available to you at this point. they can't even aspire to that next level of job because the entry level jobs are the ones that aren't available. >> reporter: rodriguez started in january looking for
6:36pm
jobs ranging from a custodian at this park to a clerk at this retail store. he gave us a glimpse of what he's facing. >> getting tons and tons of applications now. >> reporter: the job market is especially tough for hispanic teens like rodriguez. the center for labor market studies found just 21% of hispanic teens were employed last summer. compared with 32% of whites the same age. rodriguez says when good news comes it's bitter sweet. accepted to a community college he doesn't now how he will pay the $4,000 tuition. >> that's my fear for a lot of students, if they don't get to go to school in the fall because of lack of summer employment or part time job, they won't ever go back to college. >> it's hard. because i've been going over and over again. and then nothing like comes out of it. so it gets hard. >> reporter: and you need a job. >> and i need a job.
6:37pm
>> reporter: because that summer job may be the difference between a diploma from high school or college. seth jones, cbs news, yorktown heights, new york. >> mitchell: the new immigration law marched outside the state capitol in atlanta today, one day after the provisions took effect. marrers believe the law is discriminatory to minorities seeking a letter life. a judge blocked several other provisions including ones that allows police to check the immigration status of criminal suspects who lack proper identification. some controversial news this evening, from the business of sports. nfl star quarterback michael vick who served 21 months in jail for his involvement in a dog fighting reign was given a big mean endorsement deal by nike. as you can imagine not everyone is happy about it. tony guida has more. >> reporter: it's not surprising they went and did it, resigned nfl star quarterback
6:38pm
michael vick, four years after sacking in the wake how far an ugly dock fighting gay. nike likes living on the edge. >> they also love controversial, because it keeps them socially current, to pick him up again because he's going to sell a lot of shoes. >> reporter: and jerseys and more, nike hopes. after ten years on the sidelines, nike is back in business with the nfl as the lead exclusive supplier of apparel, sufficient reason apparently to take a gamble on vick. >> this story with nickel vick is unprecedented, has never been done before. nike is taking a bit of a risk but there's a high reward if it works out for them. >> reporter: neither nike or vick will reveal terms of the report but a marking special told cbs news estimates it's a multiyear contract at 1 to $3 million annually. >> i want to appall jieppedz to the young kids out there. >> reporter: vick went to
6:39pm
prison for running a dog fighting in. the nfl suspended him. but the philadelphia eagles signed him on the the rebound and he rewarded them last season with stal -- stellar performance. >> he did something that was terrible and paid his time and dues. i'm okay with it. >> reporter: the aspca disagrees. the agency said an endorsement deal should also be a measure of an athlete's off field performance. yesterday vick was chasing redemption speaking to children at a football camp in baltimore. nike's motivation might be capsulized. >> just do it. >> reporter: coming to an ad campaign near you. tony guida, new york. >> mitchell: on this holiday weekend more americans are taking to the sky to get from here to there. three million passengers are flying this weekend 9% from last
6:40pm

6:41pm
in 2003 a plane crash in new zealand killed eight people. investigators say the pilot's operating cell phone might have caused erroneous navigational indications. since 2000, there have been 10 reports in the u.s. of mid air problems linked to passengers' electronics. when i turned on my cell phone and bookberry in doug mouse's cockpit. >> we had that going up and down showing interference. >> reporter: a bigger problem, non-complying passengers. >> we with a get reports from flight attendants every day on just about every flight. >> reporter: technology might be changing all that. electronics makerrer air-cell has installed in-flight wireless system go go in one out of three planes. one month of last year two million passengers safely went on-line up in the air. and foreign carriers lime -- like elm rates, but be careful.
